    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    Phoenix Artisan Accoutrements - Vetiver Planet

    Perfumed by:
    Douglas Smythe


    Curiously, it's not just a simple grassy scent. It's got an earthy, resinous foundation that, IMO stands out as the base of the scent and the Vetiver seems to be accented with black pepper and a very 'faint', almost ghostly incense, like campfire ash rubbed in damp earth (could be the resin giving the almost undetectable incense effect, not sure). There are actual aged strands of Vetiver grass inside the aftershave/cologne bottle and it's obviously a natural tincture to the nose. I expect over time that this will get even more deep/strong due to maceration of the grass inside the bottle. I only just recently bought this because it was being discontinued. I should have bought this ages ago as it is much better than the sample I smelled a few years back. I have little doubt if this scent were put into a Dior niche line bottle frag enthusiasts would be mad for it. I have to give Douglas Smythe credit for his work with resins. This is the second fragrance I've tried from PAA with impeccable use of resins (the first is Sangre de Drago, IMO, possibly his best work).
